China must strengthen its nuclear arsenal to ‘force the US to respect it’ in response to the stance of new US President Donald Trump, a leading English-language Chinese newspaper said on Tuesday.

The comments in the Global Times, a popular subsidiary of the Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily, came just days after President Xi Jinping called for the eventual global elimination of atomic weapons.

In recent days, Chinese social media has carried pictures purporting to show an advanced intercontinental ballistic missile system deployed in the northeast.

The Dongfeng-41 is reportedly a nuclear road-mobile missile thought to have a payload of 10-12 warheads and a range of 8,700 miles (14,000 kilometres), according to the Global Times.
